How to generate an SSH key pair

If you want to do manual SSH key configuration on bitrise.io you can generate an appropriate SSH keypair with a simple Command Line / Terminal command:

ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -P '' -f ./bitrise-ssh

This will generate two files in the current directory (the directory where you run the command):

  • bitrise-ssh (private key)
  • bitrise-ssh.pub (public key)

You should copy paste the public key to your Git hosting service (GitHub, Bitbucket, etc.), and when you register your app on bitrise.io you'll have to provide the private key.
